PKN Southend-on-Sea Vol. 5

Sometimes a PechaKucha Night is held in a tent, sometimes in a more formal setting, as seen in the photos we post here from last week's PKN Southend-on-Sea Vol. 5, held at the Clifftown Studios. The photos are courtesy of Flickr user jimmymerris.

Flyer for PKN Southend-on-Sea Vol. 3

Southend-on-Sea is about to host its third PechaKucha Night volume (July 14), continuing to explore just how creatives in the area are shaping the future of the city.

PechaKucha Night was held for the first time in Southend-on-Sea earlier this month, but organizer Sean McLoughlan did not want to rest on his laurels, and so Vol. 2 is but a short week away (April 29). Above, the event's e-flyer.

Ackroyd & Harvey

Today we highlight another presentation from this month's inaugural edition of PechaKucha Night in Southend-on-Sea -- yesterday we featured media artist Damien Robinson -- this time with the works of Ackroyd & Harvey (Dan Harvey was the presenter).

Digital media artist Damien Robinson was one of the presenters at the inaugural PechaKucha Night in Southend-on-Sea, and organizer Sean McLaoughlin was kind enough to provide us with images from her presentation.

Below, a brief bio on Damien, taken from her website.

Damien is an artist working with digital media focusing on the interplay between images, sounds and vibrations.

Her artwork was originally print-based and 3D; often based on children’s stories and toys, it has been shown in venues as diverse as phone boxes and the National Art Library. From 1998 she has increasingly used digital techniques allowing her to work with media previously inaccessible to her and other deaf people. Works include De@fsite for the Photographers Gallery, Aerial (an x-space commission for inIVA), Songbird, a sonic/acoustic work initiated in a LabCulture Residency exhibited as part of ‘Re:Thinking Time’ at Peterborough Digital Arts, and AWSoM, the Ambient Weather Sound Machine (with Stuart Bowditch).

Current projects include Vibe³ (VibeCube) a commission for Essex County Council to be shown online and in sites across Essex in 2009, part of the Genius Loci public art programme.
